Our dear cat possibly returned from Honeymoon tour !


Our dear cat Pussy followed me

in the house,upstairs and downstairs

in the garden and everywhere.

As I gave her a chase for fun,

she ran away fast, hid somewhere

and a little later showed her face

and ran again.

She loved playing hide and seek game

and when tired she would lie flat

on the floor panting and licking her paws

and then eagerly wait for some food

even if she had her lunch only a little while ago.




At times she would stare at me

for quite sometime,

she knew when I would go out

and as I did she would follow me

on the road up to a little distance

and then return home.

On my return, very often,

I could find Pussy sitting on the window.

She would come near me,

curl up on my feet and wag her tail.


.


When I sat on the sofa she would jump

and sit on my lap.

I had to give her tickle on her ears,

on her throat and talk to her,

give her kisses and comfort.

If there was a delay, she would look at me,

give me a few winks, as if to say,

‘Come on why haven’t you started

all those as yet ?’



When my son was a baby,

just started to walk,

the cat took much interest in him,

would follow him everywhere

with watchful eyes

as if she was his guardian.

She enjoyed his company

as much as my son did.

Oneday I saw Pussy in the garden

along with a big cat who came from

somewhere we did not know.

Both were lying on the grass,

face to face, enjoying the sunshine

and probably having some happy

discussions on matters

that were too private. Wagging of their

tails were gaining momentum.


When called for lunch, Pussy didn’t come.

We searched everywhere but couldn’t find her.

What happened to her, where she could be,

we wondered. We missed her imensely .

My son looked around in the house

helplessly,he must have missed her too.


Three days later

Pussy came in from somewhere

mewing all the way, quite loudly,

letting us all know that she was back

and she was hungry.


She was very special, meal was served

Immediately - her favourite dish

Fish, rice and milk which she devoured

to her heart’s content

and then off she went, jumped on her bed

and got busy cleaning herself.


We all laughed and talked about her.

She was very intelligent, she could understand

every word we said.

She gave us a kind of look which seemed,

as if, she felt very guilty of herself

for being out of the house

all these days making us all feel so miserable.


She couldn’t keep her eyes open for long ,

soon we could hear her snoring

She was fast asleep,

possibly as she was too tired after

her three day long honey moon tour !

Hi Kamalesh, what a lovely story to read on a Sunday afternoon.

Cats are such wonderful company, the house must have seemed empty without her.

A three day honeymoon, no wonder she was so tired!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, thanks for sharing this one, take care and see you soon.

Cats are really very cute, whether they are awake or in sleep just watching them is so amusing. Yes they snore like anything!! Ha Ha Ha.

Best Wishes.
